Transition Readiness Program (TRP) provides our transitioning Marines and their families with the resources and tools needed to reach their personal goals and includes a standardized core curriculum.


The TRP is mandatory for all service members. It is a lifecycle program that provides resources and assistance throughout a service member’s career. There are two required workshops: Personal Readiness Seminar (PRS) and Transition Readiness Seminar (TRS). PRS must be completed upon check-in at the service member’s first permanent duty station. Pre-course work is required. Sign-ups are completed at the Career Resource Office, Bldg. 1526. Service members who are 12-14 months from the End of Active Service (EAS), or Marines who are one to two years away from retirement, must attend TRS. TRS provides information on such topics as career, employment, education and training benefits, health and life insurance programs, financial planning and more. To attend TRS, service members must visit their command Unit Transition Coordinator (UTC). Spouses are welcome to attend either workshop with prior registration.
